Why Are German Cars More Expensive

Why Are German Cars More Expensive

Even among luxury vehicles, purchase price and maintenance on German autos tends to be a bit higher than their American and Asian counterparts, though many would argue that the difference in price is more than justified by the quality, prestige, and driving experience. Are you really just paying for quality, though? What is it that makes German cars more expensive? Labor Costs Most German cars are made, unsurprisingly, in Germany. Even BMW and Mercedes, which have manufacturing plants in the United States, are assembled from components made in Europe. European labor costs are much higher. Especially in developed countries like Germany, the United Kingdom, and Belgium, high wages and taxes make manufacturing far more expensive than in the Americas and Asia. This is one of the reasons German automakers have plants in other countries - they can save a little money and sell vehicles at a lower price by outsourcing assembly to a cheaper labor force. Those higher German labor costs get p ... read more

Hitting the Road For the Holidays

Hitting the Road For the Holidays

It is that time of year again, when we all bring our families together, and in most cases; time to hit the open road. 85% of all Americans travel more than 50 miles to be with family, and in many instances, hundreds more. This isn't including the miles we put on to do our shopping for presents, or the short trips to the markets to get the turkeys, hams and all the fixings. Road trips around this time of year for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or New Years are almost a guarantee for all of us, wether it be around the corner, or across state lines. Something that is overlooked but VERY important, is that we have a good, reliable vehicle to do it all in. While we are all limited to budgetary constraints this time of year, undue automotive repair costs can be very inconvenient and unpleasant. One way to combat this, is to make sure that our vehicles are ready to gain the holiday miles. This is also the time of year when the temperature drops, and your ... read more

BMW Outsells Mercedes-Benz to become most wanted luxury car.

Source: http://www.nydailynews.com/autos/bmw-outsells-mercedes-benz-top-u-s-luxury-car-brand-article-1.1001837 sIn a nail-biting finish, BMW has claimed the title of America’s most popular luxury automaker ahead of rival Mercedes-Benz. The brand announced January 5 that US sales totaled 247,907 throughout 2011, beating Mercedes-Benz to the top spot by just 2,715 vehicles. Both automakers saw demand surge 13 percent during 2011, figures showed, with healthy discounts and incentives offered on popular models such as the Mercedes-Benz C Class and BMW 3 Series to spur consumers on. Both companies delayed releasing their December and final year results, opting to wait until all other automakers had reported and keeping analysts on tenterhooks — earlier estimates from Autodata incorrectly suggested that Mercedes-Benz had snatched the crown. Lexus, the leader of the ... read more

New Stratos DOA, neo Alpine possible?

Source: http://www.autoblog.com/2012/01/04/new-stratos-doa-neo-alpine-possible/ Stick a fork in it. The New Stratos is done. Reports kicking around the web have confirmed Ferrari has put the nix on any hopes of a production run. As you may recall, the New Stratos prototype was built off of the bones of a Ferrari F430. Pininfarina supplied the vehicle’s carbon fiber skin, and Ferrari CEO Luca di Montezemolo was so taken with the project that he personally put down a hot lap in the wedge. That affection was fleeting, however. The minds behind the New Stratos have reportedly confirmed Ferrari doesn’t want to cooperate with any company that could build a direct competitor to its products. Listen closely and you’ll hear the sound of our hearts breaking, bit by bit. There is some good news in all this gloom, however. The group behind the New Stratos has begun talks with Renault, and the French manufac ... read more

A story from a friend about his BMW horror story.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah! I know, I’m about to sound like a total snob right now talking about his foreign and expensive car but trust me when I say this is not my intention in the slightest sense. I simply would like to tell my story so if anyone else buys a BMW and has the same problem this will help. So anyways this all started roughly about nine months ago when I purchased a German Beast known as a BMW 1997 740il Silver. I got the car at a ridiculous price and I still feel it was a steal. So within two weeks I noticed that the car started to overheat in a subtle yet noticeable manner. This is where the head ache begins. So I took the car into a German Auto Repair (not to be confused with German Motors), who was allegedly a Certified Technician. The first thing this hack does is tell me that it was obviously the car’s thermostat. Well that was wrong $400 later, then this guy says no no no it is the car’s radiator coolant reservoir. So $600 later that was wrong. Now ... read more
